Jim Ross Blogs On Bryan's Title Win, Nash's Future, Punk Being The New Face Of WWE, Ryder & More
Source: JRSBARBQ.comJim Ross posted his latest blog, you can check out highlights below:
Daniel Bryan winning the World Heavyweight Championship: "Proud to see Daniel Bryan make it to the top of the card as the new, World Heavyweight Champion. Those that knock Bryan for his lack of size generally don't understand athletics especially MMA. I like that Daniel Bryan breaks the old mold, by and large, and he provides something/someone new for which the fans to emotionally invest. Bryan will be an effective fan favorite and someday, down the road, will be an outstanding wrestling villain.
"People of Bryan's character and dedication always were attractive to me when I was hiring talent. It is senseless to bring 'problem children' into a locker room especially a locker room that is somewhat young and impressionable. If Daniel Bryan is able to display his considerable skills in longer than average, TV bouts I feel that he will captivate the underdog supportive fan base many who know that Daniel has paid his dues time and again. Hopefully that story will be told in a more objective fashion on television."
Zack Ryder: "@ZackRyder embarked several weeks ago on a social media based campaign to get himself noticed and to leverage an opportunity on WWE TV. It worked. Through his own ambition, ability and creativity, Zack Ryder has become the United States Champion. He now has the ball that he so desperately wanted and now it's time for him to run with it. Ryder's in ring work is solid but it will be up to him to make sure that his ever growing fan base takes him seriously when the need calls for such. I am impressed with Ryder's work ethic and hope that the opportunity that he created for himself pays dividends."
CM Punk being the face of WWE: "Based on WWE TLC PPV and Monday's Raw from Philly, it certainly seems as if CM Punk has become the newest 'face' of WWE. No, John Cena hasn't disappeared and Cena will still face The Rock at WM28 in the longest promoted and, arguably, the biggest Wrestlemania main event ever but Punk has been positioned to be the leader of a transitioning roster of young, WWE Superstars, many of who are 'this close' to taking the much needed step to the next level."
Kevin Nash's future in WWE: "I'd guess that Kevin Nash most likely is finished wrestling for WWE but to say that Kevin is 'finished in the business' isn't probable or for me to speculate. For a 52 year old athlete with horrific knees, I thought Nash made an excellent accounting of himself in his TLC PPV bout versus HHH."
